 Counseling Services and COVID-19

Counseling Services is invested in preserving the safety and wellbeing of our Columbia College Chicago Community. It’s crucial during this time of uncertainty with Covid-19 that we protect you and our campus community. Counseling Services is currently offering Telebehavioral Health virtual sessions via Zoom at the beginning of the Spring Semester. For College Covid-19 updates, please visit the Columbia College Chicago Coronavirus Information page. Please note, offerings may change at any time. 

Getting Set-Up with Counseling Services 


Telebehavioral Health (TBH)Treatment via Zoom 

Counseling Services is currently providing Telebehavioral Health Services through Zoom for Healthcare, a HIPAA and FERPA compliant platform. Full-time and part-time students residing in Illinois may be eligible to receive individual TBH therapy services. Please call during our regular business hours to schedule an appointment or fill the Request an Appointment Form.  

Tele-health Rooms 

For students who would like to meet virtually but do not feel they have a private space to do so, we have several Tele-Health rooms that can be requested. These are private spaces equipped with the technology for a virtual therapy session to take place. They are disinfected after each use. Please alert our administrator if you would like to request the use of a Tele-health Room.

 Triage and One-Time Appointments 

Counseling Services also offers one-time case management and triage appointments throughout the semester as needed. These are currently being conducted virtually at the beginning of the Spring Semester. Toward the end of each semester Counseling Services begins to solely offer one-time appointments to support students in need. The goal of this meeting is not to provide therapy but to connect students with appropriate on and off campus mental health resources that may be useful prior to the end of the semester. 


If you are having a life-threatening emergency, please contact 911 or go immediately to the nearest Emergency Room or Living Room.
